The AYA Neo is a handheld gaming computer with an AMD Ryzen 5 4500U Renoir processor, AMD Radeon Vega 6 graphics, and a 7 inch touchscreen display sandwiched between two game controllers.

First announced last May, the Neo has been in development for much of the past year and it went up for pre-order in China in November.

Now the makers of this little gaming PC have announced they’ll launch an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for international customers in February and hope to begin shipping the Neo to backers in April.

Final pricing hasn’t been revealed yet, but a limited number of “Super early bird” backers will be able to reserve an AYA Neo for as little as $699.

That’s $99 less than the crowdfunding price for an entry-level GPD Win 3, an Intel Tiger Lake-powered handheld gaming PC that’s also coming soon, and which went up for pre-order on Indiegogo this week for $799 and up.

GPD’s little computer has a faster GPU, and more storage space than the AYA Neo. It also has a slide-up display that covers a capacitive touch keyboard (that’s kind of horrible to actually use).

The Neo doesn’t have a keyboard, but it has a larger, slightly higher-resolution display and an AMD Renoir processor which comes out ahead in some CPU benchmarks, even if lags behind in graphics horsepower.

Here’s a run-down of some key specs for the AYA Neo:

  1. Guys, I’m telling you the real specs :
    RX 580 / GTX 1650 for 1080p 60fps+ at high preset with no RT
    5700 XT / 2070 Super for 1440p 60fps+ at high preset with no RT
    RX 6800 / RTX 3070 for 4K 60fps+ at maxed out settings with RT ON
    And if you want 144 Hz gaming just lower the preset to medium and should be fine. This is generally a pretty easy game to run as long as your CPU handles it and you don’t turn on RT.

    1. What’s the context of this post?
      Besides its not entirely accurate, smh

      Maybe look at it from the performance first:
      – Non-3D = iGPU (Intel Iris to AMD Vega)
      – Basic 3D = Low Profile (GT 1030 to GTX 1650)
      – 1080p = Low Budget (GTX 1060 to GTX 1660)
      – 1440p = Midrange (RX 5600Xt to RX 5700Xt)
      – 1440p+ High-end (GTX 1080 to RTX 2080Ti)
      – 4K = Luxury (RX 6800 to RTX 3090)(min 16GB VRAM)

      1. Or if you want something more detailed:
        (it looks something like this)

        Make it Rain: (USD$1500) RTX 3090, RX 6900XT, RX 6800XT, RTX 3080, RX 6800 (USD$700),
        Luxury: (U$500) RTX 3070, RTX 2080 Ti, RTX 3060 Ti, RTX 2080-S, RX 6700XT,

        High-end: (U$300) GTX 1080, RX 5600 Xt, GTX 1660 Ti, GTX 1070 Ti, GTX 1660-S, Vega56,
        Midrange: (U$200) GTX 1070, RX 5600, GTX 980 Ti, GTX 1660, RX 590, RX 5500 Xt,
        Budget: (U$150) GTX 1650-S, RX 580-8gb, RX 480, R9 390X, GTX 1060-6gb, R9 290X,
        Low-end: (U$100) GTX 980, RX 570, RX 5500, GTX 780 Ti, R9 390, R9 290,
        Entry level: (U$50) GTX 1060-3gb, GTX 1650, GTX 970, RX 470, GTX 960, R9 380X,
        Dumpster: (U$5) GTX 780, R9 280X, HD 7970, GTX 680, GTX 770, GTX 950, R9 285.

        Low-Profile or HTPC gpus: (not listed in above)
        GTX 1050 Ti, GTX 1050, RX 460, GTX 750Ti, GTX 750, GT 1030, Vega-11, Intel HD Iris Pro.

        *obviously the prices are a rough guide of what to expect in normal times. Increased hype and demand, scalpers, crypto-miners, new Tax increases, and supply constraints mean that prices are very UN-natural at the moment.
